I recently purchased this foundation, I was very sceptical as I have dry skin and the Idea of rubbing a stick foundation on my face was not appealing. However I was completely wrong, it is so smooth and buttery on my skin and adds a nice glow to my overall face. I would not at all recommend this to anyone with oily skin and as for combination skin, I would probably recommend to try it on in stores then walk around a bit or do other errands before purchasing. It is really easy to apply when I only have 15 minutes to get ready in the morning and is easy to blend out. It looks like skin and covers up my dark circles and if I need extra coverage I take a concealer brush and dip it back into stick and apply in those areas. There is no cakiness as has lasted through my 10 hour days. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it is hard to tell if the foundation has covered my entire face when blending out product or if I have missed any spots. Also at first the foundation had an 'interesting' smell to it but the smell seems to be diminishing. Overall though, I would repurchase this again. ...read more

This is a gorgeous, easy foundation for both everyday and special occasion use. I prefer using a soft, dense brush (the ELF ultimate blending brush that's only $6!) for the most part in a mixture of buffing and patting motions. It's been covering my minor breakouts/redness exceptionally well! I'm in the shade Golden at the moment, which is one of the few foundation shades that actually matches my skin tone. I had very oily skin when I began using it and it actually stayed on my face with the help of the MUFE Equalizer. I now have normal skin with a bit of dryness here and there due to some products I've been using, and it's still good. I have two gripes though — the price and some settling. I feel as though this will run out in a matter of time due to its amount, and I don't know if I'm willing to splurge again quickly when it's out. I also have some settling issues in my laugh lines if I don't bake the areas, but blending it out quickly will solve the issue. Otherwise, great product! ...read more

I really love this foundation. I have been on the hunt for a foundation for my oily skin that wouldn't pool into my pores by the end of the day and not feel like a mask. This foundation is a medium coverage which is perfect for me. Yes, I do have some extra spots to cover, but that is what concealer is for. I do find i use quite a bit, but i am going to try to start using less on my face at a time. I prefer to blend this out with a brush rather than a beauty blender/sponge. Using the foundation with my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and the Coty Airspun powder on top (with a damp BB pressed into my skin) my skin looks airbrushed and the coverages stays all day even if I do get a bit shiny. I do get a shine to my skin, but somehow the oil does not breakthrough the foundation. I can blot and powder and it will look like I just applied my foundation. My friends and family have told me this is the best my skin has looked with foundation on it. Natural medium coverage that looks like skin all over, but I can achieve the coverage I desire with a bit of extra concealer on specific spots. This might be my HG ...read more

This is a fantastic foundation that you can also use as a concealer, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

It doesn't provide heavy coverage (but this is one reason why I like it so much) but it's enough to hide most imperfections and still lets your skin look natural. I use a MAC stippling brush to blend it, but I've used my fingers to blend before and it works quite well.

My skin is oily (with the occasional dry patch) but this foundation stays on all day, even in humid weather. It's actually the only foundation I've used that stays on my skin when it's humid outside without "melting" after a few hours. It's also very convenient to bring with you in your makeup bag for touch ups, if it's necessary!

I received a sample from Sephora and really love this! Its one ill actually buy! I just draw it on my face and blend with my elf contour brush. Creamy texture blends easily and doesn't dry my skin out. Stick allows adding more coverage in specific spots easily and quickly! The ivory is also a great match color wise. Super convenient stick makes application so fast. Its really good stuff and i usually prefer liquids and higher end but was pleasantly surprised with this! Try it!! I just went and bought the full size today! I really love how this doesn't settle into pores but hides them! Also hides dry patches and areas of peeling skin too (im recovering from a sunburn and usually foundation settles into and draws attention to where I'm peeling but this doesn't!) its a sheer/lite coverage. I have a few red spots from using my NuFace tool that i put a color corrector on, then this and my skin appears flawless! For $25 for the full size its a great deal too! ...read more

Way better than I expected. Compared to the original double wear, i would say it lasts just as long, but wears better. The original most the time looks cakey by midday, but this stuff looks flawless. It's undetectable, does not oxidize, and the color is perfect. I wear the warm shades and in the original formula, those colors seem to lean orange, in this formula it is a true yellow. Only complaint is I wish it had a bit more coverage, as I definitely need to spot conceal, but it looks like skin for a reason I guess. I also wish the applicator sponge was more effective at blending. I apply the foundation with the applicator sponge and then blend with a beauty blender. No need to set this foundation either (I'm very oily). Sooo try it! ...read more
